10 King Cakes That Can Be Shipped to Your Front Door
Celebrate Mardi Gras with the flavors of the French Quarter no matter where you are.
Fat Tuesday is quickly approaching, and the party isn’t just in New Orleans! If you want to celebrate with a traditional gold, purple and green king cake, these bakeries have a variety of cakes that can be shipped right to your door just in time to celebrate. Most even come complete with the obligatory Mardi Gras beads, gold coins and a plastic baby, to make sure someone at your party is blessed with good luck and prosperity this year.
Make sure everyone gets their fair share of luck this year with individual, pint-sized king cakes — each baked with a baby in the middle. The eight-pack of mini cakes also comes with a party pack, including masks, beads, doubloons, boas and koozies for the whole group.
If you're looking to keep things traditional, opt for this icing-free cake, which is coated in sprinkles instead. For just an extra $5, you can have the entire party delivered including Mardi Gras beads, gold coins and a throw cup.
If you're looking for a cake free of artificial colors and dairy, Breads on Oak's vegan traditional and filled king cakes are for you. Their all-natural philosophy even extends to substituting an almond instead of a plastic baby. For extra flavor, opt for a strawberry rum cream cheese or bourbon pecan praline filling — if your party is 21 and over, that is.
Shake things up this Mardi Gras with a king cake that combines two delicious treats. The BisKing Cake claims to be the original biscuit king cake, which gives it a denser texture. You'll get a sweet and salty flavor profile with a hint of cinnamon, according to the site. And yes, the baby is also included.
Satisfy your sweet tooth with this chocolate-forward treat. The Zulu King Cake is filled with chocolate morsels, cream cheese and coconut and topped with chocolate and toasted coconut, adding extra indulgence while staying true to the Louisiana tradition.
Pick your choice of fruity filling from blueberry, strawberry and raspberry, for a Louisiana-style king cake from this Texas bakery.
Stick with a traditional French King Cake with almond filling or get a little more festive with the Mardi Gras King Cake, which is filled with your choice of cream cheese, fruits, nuts or a combination of the three. If you opt for the latter, you'll also get Mardi Gras beads and a plastic baby to make your party a true celebration.
